Embracing Vulnerability and Self-Reflection to Unpack Shame and Discover Empowerment

Lauren Presutti, MEd, EdS, LLMSW

Lauren Presutti, founder of River Oaks Psychology, is a licensed psychotherapist, disability activist, speaker, educator, and community leader. Diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy at age two, Lauren has been using a power wheelchair since she was five years old. Her firsthand experiences revealed that traditional mental health professionals rarely have a lifetime of knowledge and experience to work effectively and truly connect deeply with those affected by medical conditions, chronic illnesses, and disabilities. This inspired Lauren to become a mental health therapist specializing in this area, but she also has developed herself as a clinician passionate about working with those of all backgrounds and identities. 

Lauren holds a Bachelor's in Sociology from Central Michigan University and three graduate degrees from Grand Valley State University: Master of Education (M.Ed.), Educational Specialist degree (Ed.S.), and Master of Social Work (MSW). She has worked extensively with people of all ages in educational settings, public agencies, and nonprofits. Combining her multidisciplinary expertise in sociology, education, and social work, Lauren operates as a professional grounded in theories of self-development and empowerment.
